"My uncle was in opera and sang all over the world. Seeing him do that created a road map for me and helped me to learn that things were possible. I want to bring in well-known writers who will do the same for students, who will help them see the possibilities. Martin Luther King's writings have influenced a lot of people, but he was influenced by Ghandi, who was influenced by Thoreau's essay 'Civil Disobedience.' I want kids to realize how powerful the pen can be."
